dc.description.abstractNorway has a rich tradition of instrumental music teaching in the form of skolekorps, or school bands. Norwegian school bands provide extracurricular instrumental music education and consequently often have external management: BAND PARENTS. Because of this autonomy, the Norwegian school band is a fascinating and appropriate setting for studying the implications PARENTAL INVOLVEMENT has for their students’ instrumental music education. The purpose of this study is to investigate band parents’ and band directors’ PERSPECTIVES of parental involvement and its possible effect on three band programs in order to determine areas of potential improvement. With the help of three school bands in central Buskerud, Norway, in a CASE STUDY this study reveals categories of parental involvement in which band parents’ and band directors’ perceptions coincide and are accurate. In addition, this study demonstrates the impact parents have on the DIDACTICS of Norwegian school band education.nb_NO
